Matthew Bourne brings the Tim Burton classic Edward Scissorhands to the stage
Devised, directed and choreographed by Matthew Bourne, Edward Scissorhands returns to Wales Millennium Centre from 10 to 14 March 2015.
Based on the classic Tim Burton film and featuring the beautiful and unforgettable music by Danny Elfman and Terry Davies, this touching love story tells the bittersweet story of a boy created by a lonely inventor who dies leaving him alone and unfinished. Left with only scissors for hands, Edward must find his place in a strange suburban world where the well-meaning community struggle to see past his appearance to the innocence and gentleness within.
The role of Edward will be shared between Dominic North and Liam Mower. Dominic North returns to the role that won him a National Dance Award nomination as Best Male Dancer in 2009. Making his debut as Edward this season, Liam Mower was recently seen in Billy Elliot Live as “Older Billy” when he returned to the show that made his name. This will be Liam’s 5th show with New Adventures, having recently played The Prince in Swan Lake and Count Lilac in Sleeping Beauty.
Playing Edward’s sweetheart, Kim Boggs, will be Ashley Shaw and Katy Lowenhoff. Ashley has played the Principal roles of Aurora in Sleeping Beauty, Sugar in Nutcracker! and the title role in Cinderella (all for New Adventures). Katy has become a popular New Adventures performer through her performances as Clara in Nutcracker! and her created role as “Hibernia” in Sleeping Beauty.
